Pin Release - Jessica July Calendar

The Jessica July Calendar pin was released at the Disney Soda Fountain and Studio Store on July 12th. A usual quarter shot of Jessica Rabbit is on the front of the calendar. The background is a red glitter fill. Jessica's original signature is on the right of the pin. There is also the "2013" below that. The inside shows Jessica Rabbit celebrating the 4th of July. Jessica is in white gloves and a dress with a blue top with white stars and bottom with red and white stripes. She is holding a sparkler. The background behind Jessica is red and yellow stars, and fireworks embossed in the metal showing in the clear blue glitter fill. The bottom half has the month of July printed on, the days of the week, and the full dates for the month - made like an actual calendar. Fourth of July is indicated with a star on the calendar. The pins sold for $16.95 each and are a Limited Edition of 300. As always, this was a surprise release with no set scheduled date known to the public.

By now, most comments about the pins have been fairly negative - I don't think it's needed to be mentioned that this is obviously an ongoing and monthly series. I'm not sure if people are displeased with the designs (many aren't happy that the front of the calendar will bear the same image) or are not impressed with the idea of this series all together.
